Dash and switch panels

I searched and didn't find much...

Has anyone painted or coated their interior trim and switch panels. I had to have a Lariat, but I am not a fan of the woodgrain, or the chrome bezels. I have all my panels at the "coaters" now. I should have them back tomorrow and will post up some pics then.

Anyone else in the 6.4 section do this?

That is a cell phone picture. I will try and get pictures from a "real" camera this weekend, but they are calling for rain all weekend, may be hard to get a good shot... let me rephrase... it may be hard for ME to get a good shot.

It looks awesome, the picture above is the passenger side of the dash next to the door. I also did the trim around the radio, the other side of the dash, the front of the console, all the door switch covers and the rear cup holder (my truck is a crew cab). I painted all 4 vent rings black and the trim around the cup holder on the console too.

The only chrome trim left is around the gauge cluster. I just haven't taken that apart yet... but that little bit of chrome doesn't bother me, the sun doesn't get in there and reflect into my eyes while I am driving. What was Ford thinking?

It has only been a day, but so far this is the best mod I have done that was just for looks...

right at $250 for everything, not cheap, but I thought a very good value. It seems we spend a lot of money on the parts others see, this is the part of my truck I see most.

thats about $25 per piece... I am near Charlotte NC, a local shop did this for me. I may have been given a little better deal than "street" price, but it couldn't have been much. I have two other friends doing this now. The first time they both saw it, they immediately said "I am going to have that". I really like it!

$250 is not to bad!! For another $250 you get the real deal carbon fiber. This is a great option to taking the expesive route. I located some do it yourself kits for $100. I may try to do them myself but if I crap it out I would be interested to mail my parts in to get them done also with a check enclosed!
